Le Chant des plaines

Novel by Kent Haruf


Plainsong is a bestselling novel by Kent Haruf.
Set in the fictional town of Holt, Colorado, it tells the interlocking stories of some of the inhabitants.
The title comes from a type of unadorned music sung in Christian churches, and is a reference to both the Great Plains setting and the simple style of the writing.
The novel was adapted in 2004 into a Hallmark Hall of Fame TV movie on CBS.
